Abstract

Recent investigations on the application ofsupercritical (SC)Jluid technology in bin- andfood chemistry are reviewed. The gas-antisolvent crystallization and rapid expansion of SC&id emerge as attractive methods for micron-size particle formation. Also gainingground is enzymic catalysis in SC CO,, which offers the possibility of integrated synthesis-product recovery processes. These processes, successfully tested on a lahoratoly scale, need further scale-up and optimization. Supercritical CO, has proven to be unfriendly, or even toxic, for living microorgcmisms, which precludes direct fermentation in dense CO, but does not rule out other useful applications.
